Product description

Plantation O.F.T.D (Old Fashioned Traditional Dark) is a high-strength blend of rums from Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica. Rich and warming with notes of spice, coffee, orange and clove, this is excellent in tiki cocktails.

O.F.T.D. behaves extremely well in punches and swizzles, or wherever rich aroma, color, and proof are needed to make tropical cocktails sing.

    Powerful on the nose, elegant on the pallet, leave it on your tongue for a little and it melts. Definitely my new favorite rum, strong, flavorful and definitely an experience like no other. Easy 5/5 some of us may be built different, taste at your own risk!

    It is an excellent addition to any tiki drink makers collection. It has a flavor that recalls some of those original tiki rums that are no longer available. Being overproof at 69% it can provide an extra potency to an already flavorful drink, or a very tasty float in place of a 151 for a less potency. It straddles that chasm quite well.


Dark rum doesn't really have a definition. However, dark rum generally refers to rum that is brown in appearance thanks either aging, or the addition of molasses or caramel coloring. Dark rum is known to taste slightly more charred than other varieties, like white rum. That said, people often drink it neat or with over ice.
Dark rum goes great with a number of mixers, including ginger ale, orange juice, grapefruit juice and sodas like Coca-Cola. Dark rum has the heaviest, fullest body of any other variety of rum. It's rich in color, flavor and body - usually tasting of caramel and molasses. So, any beverage that could use a kick of caramel will be well suited to go with dark rum.
Also known as white rum, this is rum that has no color and a light flavor because its filtered multiple times and has a short aging period. It's often aged in steel tanks and is known for having a light body and sweet flavor. This is different than gold or dark rum which is aged in wooden casks and is notably more caramel tasting.
